Experience Africa's vibrant and volatile struggle at the crossroads between tradition and modernity ...INTO THE HOUSE OF THE ANCESTORS "Rich ...fascinating." --The New York Times Book Review "A master of eyewitness description and of the telling interview, [Maier] has unearthed Africa's hidden heroes and heroines." --Financial Times "Maier has written a sensitive and complex narrative...excellent descriptions of the lives and experiences of both ordinary and extraordinary individuals in different parts of Africa." --Richard Leakey, The Times (London) "A remarkable book...It is no easy task to articulate an intangible undercurrent in an area so geographically large and culturally diverse, but Maier has succeeded admirably.
